Fatigue is a very common complaint among patients, and mostly because none of us were designed to work 40+ hours per week. The stress of managing jobs, children, and the day-to-day stresses of life can stimulate fatigue. For some people, a good night’s sleep is all that is needed to fix their exhaustion but there are also medical causes for fatigue that are easy to overlook, such as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is caused by irregular breathing during your sleep, where the body will randomly stop breathing, causing severe fatigue and other concerns.
Adrenal fatigue can also cause severe fatigue and exhaustion. To identify this, we test your adrenal glands through saliva to see if the glands are being overworked. Conducting a blood test is another effective way to identify the cause of your fatigue whether it be something as simple as low blood sugar or more severe like anemia. In any case, we are able to conduct a variety of tests to identify the cause of your fatigue, and thanks to our in-office testing capabilities, we can get your results back to you within a short window of time; eliminating the downtime between testing and the diagnosis of a medical issue.
